Construction safety is a major concern in Hong Kong. According to the accident statistics of the Labour Department, construction is the industry that has the highest number of fatalities and is the top two industries that has the most accidents in recent years. An effective construction safety management system and full compliance with the Factories and Industrial Undertakings Ordinance (Chapter 95) and its subsidiary regulations can help prevent accidents and improve the construction safety performance.

At PolyU, there are construction safety policy and management system in place to safeguard the health and safety of its staff, students, visitors and the public.

Campus Development Office and Facilities Management Office are responsible for managing the safety of their contractors performing builder works, repair, maintenance, and addition and alternation works of buildings at the university. Health, Safety and Environment Office is responsible for monitoring of safety performance of their contractors and providing safety advices.

In the coming years, we will have many large-scale construction projects like Homantin Campus, new residential halls of students in Kowloon Tong, library extension & revitalization, provision of an additional floor in Block P. Therefore, an effective risk management is crucial to prevent accidents and incidents due to construction works.
